WHEN JAPAN MEETS IRELAND – SAPPORO BEER BRAISED CORNED BEEF

When Sapporo Beer asked that I make a dish using their product I immediately thought of my husband.  He loves his Sapporo Beer and, being Irish, his corned beef.

I found this recipe on the Food Channel which I adapted to suit our taste.

Ingredients:

1 (4 pound) corned beef brisket
6 garlic cloves, smashed
2 large shallots, peeled and quartered
1 small white onion, peeled and cut in half
3 tablespoons of pickling spice
3 tablespoons caraway seeds
34 ounces Sapporo Reserve Beer (they come in 22 oz cans – I drank what was left over – no use in wasting a good beer)
1/2 cup Irish whiskey
6 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
6 red potatoes, cut into quarters
6 sprigs fresh dill
Salt/Pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Put the corned beef into a large roasting pan (preferably with a lid). Add the garlic, shallots, pickling spice, caraway seeds, dill, beer and whiskey. Cover and place in the oven. Braise 3 hours, turning the meat once. At the end of the 3 hours, add the carrots, potatoes. Cover again and place back in the oven for an additional 2 hours. Remove from the oven. Place the corned beef in the center of a platter and mound the carrots and potatoes around it. Serve immediately with a cold glass of your favorite Sapporo Beer.

    Easy recipe that looks so good and I would guess, really delicious!

  8. Wow! This is cooked slowly so I imagine the flavors really penetrate all the way. I can’t wait to try it especially with a Sapporo. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    • Make sure you rinse the meat well and do not salt it until after is cooked. The first three hours the liquid will be strong and bitter but the final result the meat will be tender. I would rather next time is cook the potatoes and carrots separately.
